Our purpose at Citizens of the World Charter Schools (CWC) is to realize human potential by strengthening the bonds among us and developing true citizens of the world. In this work, we are guided by our core values of Excellence, Authenticity, Diversity, Community and Change, and our operating norms that reflect a commitment to personal and professional growth, including operating as learners, with curiosity, integrity and humility.
The mission of Citizens of the World Charter Schools is to impact and expand the conversation about what an excellent education contains, requires and accomplishes. Citizens of the World schools challenge students to realize their full potential and thrive in a diverse society. We are public schools open to all, committed to serving diverse communities throughout the U.S. with schools currently in Los Angeles, CA, Kansas City, MO and Cincinnati, OH. We develop sophisticated thinkers who master content and have a courageous and compassionate sense of responsibility for themselves and others. Our classrooms are challenging – and joyful – learning environments that engage children through fun projects tailored to their personal experiences, strengths and needs. Our teachers take the time to get to know each child as an individual. We empower children to think critically and learn to engage respectfully and productively with fellow students by developing their capacity to enter into and understand the lives of others. Our goal is for student “success” to include both mastery of content and an understanding of their emotions, so that students can meaningfully connect with each other, be part of any community, and courageously decide who they are in the world and how they want the world to be.
